An anonymous complaint led Knox County Sheriff’s Deputy Keith Liford to a home on
Arkle Hollow in Gray Wednesday, Nov.11. During his investigation, Deputy Liford, assisted by Knox County Constable Reed Murphy, discovered several signs indicating a meth lab. Multiple ingredients used in the manufacturing of methamphetamine were found, along with a coffee filter containing a white powder residue. Deputy Liford’s suspicions were confirmed when he found an active one-step meth lab inside the home.
Deputy Liford and Constable Murphy arrested Anita Perry, 27, of Gray. Perry was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine), unlawful possession of methamphetamine precursors and tampering with physical evidence.
A Kentucky State Police DESI Meth Disposal Unit was called to the scene to take possession of the active lab.
